Black As Night

When magic and technology cross paths, all heck will break loose.

Lyrics

I can’t help believing
that this course she can’t stop weaving
a part of her deceiving
herself that this is right

She focuses fate
her intentions transferred to ticker-tape
through ink as black as night

all the magic was lost to the measurement
retracing lines to find
the days that were better spent

Complex enchantments all now saved to preset
Calculated, downsized, compromised I regret

and the incantations
put down in rows & columns
on a spreadsheet open wide
spreadsheet open wide

and by all indications
God’s tied up in litigation
and He isn’t on your side
He isn’t on your side

The last alarm it sounds a toll
As the treads they slowly roll
when science and magic collide

As the expressions
parse through the spellchecker
She edits her hexes
There’s no room for an error

And Inhibitions
Once designed to protect her
Are shredded by the tide
She’s taken for a ride

And now the piper wants his toll
As the waves they crash and roll
when science and magic collide

I can’t help believing
that this course she can’t stop weaving
a part of her deceiving
herself that this is right

stars stop flickering
it feels the heavens are bickering
and day goes black as night
